what do you mean by wet dry exactly? also you dont have to sell everything back, you can keep your live rock in a large rubbermaid tub/bucket with a pump in it to keep it cycled which would cut down on the total time it takes to get to happy lol.
Other then my original question the steps look good. Thx for the compliments!

What size is your tank? The skimmer in the link you show is for tanks only up to 30g.

Google on HOB skimmers. I've used the CPR Bak Pak brand and was happy with it.

I'm not familiar with filters at all. Never used one, just the Hang on Back (HOB) skimmer varieties.

I think you scratch a wet/dry too.

Why consider getting rid of anyting in your current tank? You've also got a case of red slime/cyanobacteria.
